I love the stability of the 190 but skied the 184 this week and liked it more in tight spaces. If the snow is that choppy good chance I'll be on my Jeffreys.
    regular layup our tour? I have a set of 184 wildcat tour 108s that i would swap for similar 190s

    Those things look crazy. Probably a great ski if you live in northern Japan and get to ski deep pow every day.

    Sorry if this has been discussed before but any general comparisons between the Ghost Train and CB? Mainly just generally the on snow feel, which one has a more playful/surfy feel, which is more chargy and stout, etc.?

    I own Bananas, and have ridden a single lap on the Ghost Trains.

    The Bananas are pretty subtly rockered, which is not at all the case with the Ghost Trains; the rocker lines are deep, and the tips and tails are HIGH. The Ghosts are quite a bit lighter, and considerably softer in the tips and tails. Definitely quicker and more playful, and better floatation, but not the monster truck that the Chipotle Bananas are. The Bananas are ridiculously stable, and surprisingly playful, where the Ghosts are ridiculously playful and surprisingly stable.

    I really want to pick up a pair of Ghost Trains but itís getting hard to justify yet another pair of 115mm+ skis in the quiver.

    Can you describe the flex pattern for these? Compared to, say, the WC 108 for example. Significantly softer all around or similar to the Wildcat i.e. still pretty stiff underfoot and progressive?

    Ill also add that if you look at the tip/tail dimensions and their ratio to eachother, the Ghost Trains have wider tails than the Bananas. I had the Ghost Train 194s for a bit, and felt the wider tails pushing me back to center a bit more, asking for more of a centered stance than being able to drive the tips (like the Bibbys).

    I wonder how much of that is translated with the updated materials. Also, regarding weight - theyíre saying around 10lbs which is heavier than the Blister Review weight and the factory weight of the CB. Hopefully theyíre overestimating, was thinking this would be a solid touring option if closer to 2000g range.

    Mine is definitely going to see touring duty. I think this ski will make the low angle loving a lot of fun. It will be interesting to see where they come out weight-wise.

    If ski companies didn't make new skis every year I wouldn't have to get new skis every year.

    Hmmm, maybe they arenít lighter than the Bananas after all. That was just my one run impression of the Ghost Trains.

    Any of you taken the wildcat tour layups for laps inbounds?

    I did some laps on my 108 tours and they RIP. SO MUCH FUN. Idk if I like them better than my Bibbys yet or not, not quite as chargy, but damn were they playful. I'm very excited to take them back out. 10/10 would ride again.

    Totally. Iíve got 184cm WC108 Tours with Tectons that Iím winding up using a surprising amount on lift serviced days. While Iím a fan of skis with a lot of top end, theyíre fast becoming my go to ski when Iím not looking to charge, or have tired legs or sore knees. I could totally see some skiers getting along with these as 100% lift served skis, theyíre that good.

    You might be right since Blister said the 2016s were around ~2070g per ski (186cm). But it sounded like the new model might be closer to 2250g which is close to a half lb per ski difference, so not insignificant.

    I use my 190 WC108 Tour with shifts as my narrow travel ski. They work really well for that as long as Iím not on ice.

    They have a bit of a speed limit but honestly itís a reasonably high one.

    With the benefit of hindsight, for my use profile Iíd probably have gone regular core or lighter binding but Iím still a skin track JONG.
